    Exactly who is International Research Agency? A young woman who says she was hired by a Russian company to dissemble and to promote certain political views online has come out of the shadows to shine a light on her purported former employer and the practice, known as "trolling."

    Injecting minute amounts of two immune-stimulating agents directly into solid tumors in mice can eliminate all traces of cancer in the animals, including distant, untreated metastases, according to a study by researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine. The approach works for many different types of cancers, including those that arise spontaneously, the study found.

    All this week, NewsBusters is recounting the most obnoxious liberal bias of 2017. Monday, we presented some of the most outrageous examples of journalists fawning over liberal or left-wing icons, and yesterday we showcased some of this year’s nastiest attacks on Republicans or conservatives. Today, it’s a look at all of the over-the-top attacks on President Donald Trump, who was called a “crazy” “basket case” of a “sociopath” by the likes of CNN’s Don Lemon and the Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin. Morning Joe hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski were terrified that “madman” Trump’s tweets were going to get us...

    All this week, NewsBusters is recounting the most obnoxious liberal bias of 2017. Yesterday, we presented the most outrageous examples of journalists fawning over liberal or left-wing icons; today’s installment showcases some of this year’s most rancid quotes attacking Republicans or conservatives, NOT named Donald Trump. (The media’s attacks on the President will be featured on Wednesday.) The shootings in Las Vegas of country music fans and Republican Congressman Steve Scalise on a baseball field in Alexandria, Virginia brought out the media’s hatred for the NRA and gun-owners. Esquire columnist Charles Pierce disgustingly called the Vegas attack a “blood sacrifice”...

    As 2017 comes to a close, this week NewsBusters is recounting the most obnoxious liberal bias of the year. Today’s installment: the most outrageous examples of journalists fawning over liberal or left-wing icons, including Barack Obama who MSNBC’s Chris Matthews swooned over: a “fine case of that fine man” that was a “fine president.” His colleague Rachel Maddow called Obama a “top ten” president of all-time who saved us from another Great Depression, while former disgraced Today show host Matt Lauer admitted he “burst out crying” over Obama and Joe Biden’s final moments. And of course, there was also praise...
  • Bob Mueller vs. Ken Starr: A Classic Media Double Standard

    Liberal reporters are scandalized by what they say is President Trumps effort to discredit and undermine special counsel Robert Mueller, worried that it could presage an attempt to remove Mueller, or end his investigation. But when President Bill Clinton was being investigated by Ken Starr, journalists applauded Democratic and White House attacks on the independent counsel, and frequently joined in themselves. Todays journalists seem appalled by attempts by the President and his allies that question Muellers credibility. Washington Post reporters Devlin Barrett and Sean Sullivan sounded the alarm in a front-page story on December 7: Several law enforcement officials said...

    A New York Doctor was found murdered shortly after reporting a breakthrough discovery in the cure for cancer. Dr. Miguel Crespos body was found in the bathroom of the Weill Cornell Medical Center on the Upper East Side where he worked, after having gone missing for several hours. Police initially thought that Dr. Crespo had committed suicide by drug overdose after they found vomit next to his body and foaming at his mouth. However, close friends and family say his death is suspicious, noting that Dr. Crespo had just made an exciting discovery in the field of cancer research and...

    The FBI has asked the Senate for unredacted documents it obtained from abortion providers, signaling agents may be investigating whether Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers illegally sold fetal tissue and body parts, according to sources familiar with the document request. The request was made in recent days, the sources said, to the Senate Judiciary Committee, whose chairman, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), last December referred Planned Parenthood and several other abortion providers to the FBI for investigation after a lengthy probe into the transfers of fetal tissue. Grassley said at the time that his committee had uncovered enough evidence in...
  • Bias: 1,000 Minutes for Trump/Russia 'Collusion' vs. 20 Seconds for Hillary/Russia Scandal

    Here’s one top takeaway from network news coverage in 2017: Sneaky Russian influence in American politics is a huge story if it involves Republicans/Donald Trump, but a non-story if it involves Democrats/Hillary Clinton. MRC analysts have been tracking all evening news coverage of the Trump administration since Inauguration Day. From Inauguration Day, January 20, through last Friday, October 20, these broadcasts have aired an astonishing 1,000 minutes of coverage discussing Russia’s attempt to boost Trump in 2016, and speculation that Trump’s campaign may have colluded with the Russians in this project. Last week, The Hill published new information about Russian...

    While problems with cell line misidentification have been known for decades, an unknown number of published papers remains in circulation reporting on the wrong cells without warning or correction. Here we attempt to make a conservative estimate of this contaminated literature. We found 32,755 articles reporting on research with misidentified cells, in turn cited by an estimated half a million other papers.

    A public university in the United Kingdom has refused to allow a researcher to look into cases of people who regretted having gender reassignment surgery and transitioned back to living as their birth sex. The university says such a study "may be detrimental to the reputation of the institution," according to a report.James Caspian, a psychotherapist, proposed to do the study for a master's degree in counselling and psychotherapy at Bath Spa University, but was refused permission, according to The Sunday Times.The university explained that the potentially "politically incorrect" research could be criticized on the internet and thereby harm the...

    Mothers who experience an infection severe enough to require hospitalization during pregnancy are at higher risk of having a child with autism. Two new studies from MIT and the University of Massachusetts Medical School shed more light on this phenomenon and identify possible approaches to preventing it. In research on mice, the researchers found that the composition of bacterial populations in the mothers digestive tract can influence whether maternal infection leads to autistic-like behaviors in offspring. They also discovered the specific brain changes that produce these behaviors. We identified a very discrete brain region that seems to be modulating all...

    snip... Thats why I am proud to join the majority of my fellow veterans and other Americans who support Congresss bipartisan work to defund painful and inefficient dog experiments at the VA. This legislation is truly a light among the gloomy partisan clouds surrounding D.C. these days. With all of D.C.s political gridlock, my dear friend and fellow double amputee and bomb technician Rep. Brian Mast, R-Fla., Rep. Dave Brat, R-Va., and other House members deserve applause for unanimously passing legislation this summer to prohibit taxpayer funding for questionable VA research that causes dogs significant pain and distress.

    Ill admit it. Im addicted to learning. Theres nothing quite like the thrill that comes with finding out something new.Its no surprise I ended up this way. My parents were public school teachers. They instilled in me the belief that education not only opens up new opportunities but also is enjoyable in itself. My parents regularly took my siblings and me to museums, encouraged us to read widely and entertained our incessant whys? and hows? And though neither of my parents taught science, I remember studying constellations at night and experimenting with chemistry at the dining table. (My parents passed...

    The United States Special Operations Command just tested a high-energy laser on the AH-64 Apache attack helicopter, marking the first time such a weapon has been deployed aboard a rotary-wing aircraft. According to a press release from defense company Raytheon, the test was a complete success, providing solid experimental evidence for the feasibility of high resolution, multi-band targeting sensor performance and beam propagation supportive of High Energy Laser capability for the rotary-wing attack mission. Matthew Ketner, branch chief of the High Energy Laser Controls and Integration Directorate at the Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division, Virginia, shows the effects of...

    With Congressman Steve Scalise still recovering from an attack by a crazed leftist, MSNBC’s Joy Reid couldn’t keep from politicizing the tragedy as she took a cheap shot at the congressman’s record. On June 17 the host of AM Joy tweeted “Rep. #Scalise was shot by a white man with a violent background, and saved by a black lesbian police officer, and yet...” She then accompanied the tweet with a graphic of what were, in her view, his political offenses: “Rep. Steve Scalise’s Record: Co-sponsored bill to amend Constitution, Define marriage as between a man and a woman; Voted for...

    >In covering the President’s proposed budget this week, network reporters unanimously claimed it “cut” or even “slashed” federal spending. An MRC analysis of ABC, CBS and NBC morning and evening news coverage since Monday (May 22) finds that not a single reporter ever told viewers that overall federal spending would actually RISE under President Trump’s planned budget — just not as much as forecast under the budget baseline Trump inherited from President Obama back in January. In 13 news stories from May 22 to May 25, network journalists made 30 references to “cuts” in federal spending, either referring to specific...

First reported by The Daily Caller, Mary Atwater, a professor of science and mathematics education at the University of Georgia, received $229,061 to study the implications of microaggressions and look at minority participation in science and math, according to a statement from the University of Georgia.
